Peter Piper (Easy Version)


Peter Piper chose a large number
Of peppers that had been soaked in vinegar and spices

A large number of peppers
that had been soaked in vinegar and spices
were chosen by Peter Piper

If it is indeed true
That Peter Piper chose a large number
Of peppers that had been soaked in vinegar and spices

Where are they?

Much easier to say than the original I think you'll agree. I mean, fancy writing a poem where every word starts with the same letter. How silly is that?

That's totally 'triffic!

What amount of lumber
might a groundhog toss?
if a marmot was capable of
discarding
the hard fibrous substance that makes up the greater part of the stems and branches of trees???

Or:
How much wood could a woodchuck chuck,
if a woodcuck could chuck wood.

Very good. One for my next anthology perhaps, Jonathan.

Any more suggestions?

Sally vends the
hard calcareous covering
of salt water dwelling creatures
south, near the quayside.

Nice!

perhaps it could use a comma after "creatures".
